Christina Coc on Land Rights in Belize at UNPFII 2015


Cristina Coc, a Q'eqchi Maya woman of southern Belize, shares how Mayan groups in Belize have been fighting for their rights for over 30 years. After many meetings with the State, the Belize national court has acknowledged legal Indigenous rights to their land and affirmed that the government may not use, destruct, or occupy Indigenous land.

This audio is part of a series UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues – 2015 by Indigenous Rights Radio, a program of Cultural Survival.
